How to Save Money on Your Internet Access When Working From Home

It is no secret that when you work from home you have different costs than you would if you worked in an office.

One of these costs is the cost of finding good, reliable broadband.

Unfortunately in the US most consumers and locations only have access to a handful of broadband providers.

Recently I went on a hunt to save money on my internet connection and I was able to save over $600 in the first year.

Below are the resources I used to save money, hopefully this will help you other work from home freelancers save money too.

Find the Providers in Your Area

In my area, I discovered that there are two primary providers: Xfinity and Verizon Fios.

While we do have other smaller providers in the area these are the ones that offer the best deals.

Compare Deals Across Providers

In my case, I began by comparing deals offered by both Xfinity and Verizon Fios.

Fios offered faster symmetrical speeds for a lower price than Xfinity… without data caps.

For you, you’ll want to make sure you do a thorough comparison of Xfinity vs FiOS.

How I Chose

Once I was finished comparing and shopping for deals, I sat down and really evaluated my need, especially for my business.

Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of video editing so having fast upload speeds are very important to my work.

That said, our family ultimately chose Verizon Fios for it’s flexible TV plan and symmetrical speed.
